Slipstones

North Yorkshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 243 – Rocktype Gritstone – Altitude 61m a.s.l – Faces SW

Crag features
Originally included in the North of England Guide (by Stew Wilson and Ron Kenyon) based on details in October 1964 Climber magazine - because YMC did not think it was worth including in the grit guide (back in prehistoric times)

Then in YMC grit guide and second edition of North of England guide and also in North East England selective guide. New NE England guide coming out sometime soon.

As a crag it was a bit small in stature but as a bouldering venue it is brilliant - as its recent prominence has shown. It was amazing who had climbed there even before the current publicity - even saw the great John Allen there one day.

Access notes
Due to the new popularity of the crag important to follow access details and park responsibly. Road up valley is narrow but look for the parking and a few hundred yards walking (if necessary) shouldn't do any harm - and will help the access situation.

Ian Broome - 11/Dec/11

Why are so many of the routes which are clearly boulder problems (e.g. lay-by, slanting flake etc.) still given route grades? It's not the 1980's. I understand for the borderline height ones, but not for 3m high... please could the crag mod sort this out
lukehodson - 06/Sep/10

good place but someone has broken slanted crack hs 4b and now its a little harder to do
insert - 19/Jun/08

outstanding crag, something for everyone, can be VERY windy at times. had a thoroughly enjoyable day there. a really good place to push your grade, but take a mat and some big mates!
rain dog... - 27/Sep/04

wide variety of excellent problems and routes for most ranges and nice setting what more dop you need.
